Lions Preview

Lions have a setback with 2 back-to-back losses in the last two matches and their batting unit has failed to cross the 250-run mark. Ryan Rickelton is having a superb season this year with 415 runs so far. Nicky Van Den Burgh, Wihan Lubbe, and Delano Potgieter have scored around 250 runs and will look to continue their good work. Reeza Hendricks and Dominic Hendricks have come up with small cameos to build partnerships. Eldred Hawkins and Malusi Siboto will share the new ball and will need to provide early breakthroughs for the team. They have a strong spin contingent with skipper Aaron Phangiso, Bjorn Fortuin, and Wihan Lubbe in their playing XI.

Key Players:

Ryan Rickelton – Rickelton is having a silent time in the last 4 matches with a high score of just 32 runs after scoring nearly 300+ runs in the first 4 matches. He will look to regain his touch and put more runs on board in this match.

Aaron Phangiso – Phangiso has 16 wickets at an economy of 4.7 RPO and is pressurizing the batsmen in middle overs with his disciplined line and lengths.

Lions Predicted Playing XI:

Ryan Rickelton (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Dominic Hendricks, Nicky van den Bergh, Wihan Lubbe, Delano Potgieter, Bjorn Fortuin, Malusi Siboto, Aaron Phangiso (c), Eldred Hawken, Beuron Hendricks/Dwaine Pretorious
